Do You Ever Ask Others For Help?

Question Mark
Question Mark

Karen was frustrated with her WordPress Mobile App; her Android smartphone froze every time she tried to press the ‘Like’ button on someone’s blog post. “Come on!” She shouted at the top of her voice.

Her boyfriend, Harold stopped what he was doing in the kitchen and walked as quickly as he could in the direction of the living room — the very room that his girlfriend, Karen was in. “What is all of this commotion about?” He asked.

“Oh, Harold. This damn WordPress App is driving me crazy,” Karen said, shaking the Android smartphone ferociously in her left hand.

“Okay, Karen. Please describe to me the problem you are having,” Harrod said in a very calm-sounding voice.

Karen’s face was red with anger. “The WordPress Mobile App keeps freezing whenever I try to press the ‘Like’ button on someone’s blog post.”

“May I have a look at your phone for a moment?” Harold asked.

“Sure,” Karen said; she handed her smartphone to her boyfriend.

Harold fiddled with Karen’s Android smartphone for a few seconds and said, “Damn! This thing is slow!”

“Yes, that I do know,” Karen said in a tone of voice that was combined with sarcasm and anger.

Harold noticed that his girlfriend, Karen had utilized all of the space on her Android smartphone. Apparently, Karen did not transfer the edited photos to her computer; as a result, the WordPress App was unable to update.

“Any progress?” Karen asked.

“Yes, my love. I am going to transfer all of these photos to your laptop because they are taking up too much space on your phone,” Harold said; he attached the USB cord to Karen’s laptop and he inserted the USB C connector to her Android smartphone.

Approximately one minute after, Harold removed the USB cord from the laptop and he also removed the USB C connector from Karen’s Android smartphone. He updated the WordPress Mobile App via the Google Play Store. He handed the phone back to his girlfriend, Karen. “Try it now,” he said.

Karen’s frown was replaced with a smile. “Sweetheart, it actually works. You’re a genius!” She gave Harold a hug and then kissed him.

“Next time, ask for help, my love,” Harold said.

Karen’s face was fixated in the direction of the screen of her Android smartphone and she was pressing the ‘Like’ button on a blog post that she read.

Harold quietly made his way back into the kitchen and continued where he had left off — he could finally resume making that vegan sandwich of his.

There Is Someone Who Is Capable Of Helping You Out

We tend to forget the fact, that there is someone out there who is capable of helping us out with our technologically-related issue.

And, all we have to do is ask for help. But, instead of asking for someone’s help, we continue to stress our self out with our technologically-related issues (Oh, we can be a bit stubborn and crazy at times).

Okay, I will be the first to admit, that I would fight up with a technologically-related issue for hours. But, I could have made things easy for myself by simply asking for someone’s help.

Some of us are ashamed of asking for help. However, we need to swallow our pride and ask someone for their assistance.

If you are having a WordPress-related issue, you might as well ask for help in the WordPress Forum.

Also, do not hesitate to ask for help from your loved ones because they might have a solution to your problem.

The longer you refuse to ask for help is the longer it is going to take to actually rectify the situation.

So, are you going to ask for help the next time that you are faced with a technologically-related issue that you are unable to solve?

There Are People Who Are Incapable Of Helping You Out

In reality, there are people who are incapable of helping you out; for example:

  • A very elderly man or a very elderly woman (Unfortunately, they are not usually tech-savvy).
  • A baby or a toddler (They are not old enough to help you solve your technologically-related issues).
  • A spouse (Even though there are tech-savvy spouses out there, your spouse might be one of those technologically ignorant spouses on the planet).

Since the above mentioned are not capable of helping other people with technologically-related issues, you will have no choice but to find someone who possesses the knowledge of rectifying your situation.

The God’s/Goddess’ truth is that there are people who know very little or nothing about technology (Those people might be your parents or grandparents or both).

There Are People Who Would Not Even Bother To Help You

Some of you already know, that there are people who would not even dream of helping us; they are the type of people who enjoy watching other people suffer and they love to rejoice in other people’s pain.

The biggest irony is that when those same people are desperate for help, they would like other people to help them.

Now, being the kind and loving person that I am, I would still go out of my way to help them.

Sometimes, it requires that a selfish person is placed in a so-called helpless position, so they would have an idea as to the kind of pain that others went through when they were desperately in need of help (Selfish people are unable to escape the clutches of karma).

There Are Those People Who Would Like To Figure Out Things On Their Own

We all know of people who are in the habit of figuring out things on their own.

Honestly, I can be like that at times. I have scoured the search engine listings on many occasions with the intention of finding a solution for a technologically-related issue.

However, I do not always find an answer to the technologically-related issue that I am faced with; which places me in the position of actually asking someone for help.

And, luckily for me, I do get the help that I need whenever I ask for it.

Final Thoughts

Asking for help is not always easy for the stoic type of individual; they would prefer to help others than to actually receive help from others.

Some people do see it as a sign of weakness to ask others for help (And, as a result of their psychological make-up, they end up suffering in silence).

Do you ever ask for help whenever you need it?

Or are you one of those people who are ashamed of asking others for help?

  1. I figure most things out myself and help others. I have found true friend’s help in life. Tech friends are rare though. Who wants to be the guy that cleans dirt out of the mouse.

    1. 🙂 Well, Neil, I have cleaned the dirt out of a mouse (It is nothing to be ashamed of). Besides, cleaning the mouse enables it to work better.

      I am fortunate to have a few tech-savvy friends.

      And, it is nice to know that you are the type of person who figures things out for yourself and help others.


      1. I too was the mouse cleaner. Some people just don’t wish to learn. Which is fine as long as they don’t put on you. That’s the hard choice, deciding whom is after help and who is just making use of you. I tend to go with being helpful most of the time.

  2. I like figuring things out for myself. That’s how I learn. However, when I can’t figure it out, I ask for help. I am one of those people, though, who would rather give help than receive help simply because I don’t want to burden anyone with my problems. Plus, I don’t like feeling obligated to anyone. A pride thing, I suppose.
